After their historic achievements at the Rio Olympics, newlyweds Jason and Laura Kenny, decided a motorhome honeymoon across Europe would be the perfect way to unwind away from the media spotlight

A motorhome holiday not only allowed Jason and Laura the chance to visit five countries - France, Italy, Switzerland, Luxembourg & Belgium - but also meant that their two dogs Sprolo and Pringle were able to come along for the ride as well.

The couple chose a Bailey Approach Advance 665 for their European trip and have now returned to the UK after more than a month of touring.

"We had such a wonderful time," said Laura. "When Jason said he wanted to hire a motorhome for our honeymoon, so the dogs could come too, I was a bit sceptical.

"I am so glad he did. The four of us have seen some really beautiful places on our trip and had the absolutely best time together.

"We really cannot thank Bailey enough for the loan of the motorhome."

Laura already has previous experience of life in a Bailey motorhome through use of the support vehicle which the company currently provides for the Matrix Fitness women's cycling team of which she is a member.

The team has been supporting and promoting the women's cycling scene since it was officially formed in 2010 and competes at major races throughout the UK and Europe.

Nick Howard, managing director of Bailey of Bristol said: "Jason and Laura's record-breaking success on the cycle track in Rio this summer, as part of a tremendous overall Team GB performance, has really captured the public imagination and has made the whole nation feel very proud.

"We were delighted therefore to be able to provide them with the use of a Bailey motorhome in which they could escape the limelight for a while to enjoy some time together to relax."
